Custom field to display arbitrary X-header?

Hi there,

Is there any way to create a custom field in Outlook to reference an arbitrary X-header? I'm aware of how to populate fields using a custom form, etc but am unable to find a way to do this explicitly for a custom header that I want to be on the look-out for.

Further - if this is not possible, is there any way to search all folders for a particular X-header? The advanced search gives me all of the "available" search fields, none of which are custom X-header..

Thanks in advance,

Hi, Seanus.

X-Header information is not a property of any Outlook item.  The only way to get it would be to write a macro or Outlook add-in that retrieved it.  You could then insert the value into a user-property of an Outlook item.
